ACKNOWLEDGMENT 

The acreage, production, and value statistics in this bulletin are official State and USDA 
estimates prepared by the Florida Agricultural Statistics Service. The county and area detail were 
made possible by the participation of the Department of Food and Resource Economics, University of 
Florida, in the estimating program. The Bureau of State Farmers' Markets, Florida Department of 
Agriculture, and the County Extension Agents, University of Florida, Cooperative Extension Service, 
were also very helpful in supplying area and county information. Shipment statistics were provided 
by the Market News Section of the Florida Department of Agriculture and the USDA Agricultural 
Marketing Service. 

Grower organizations have provided valuable assistance and data throughout the season. These 
groups include the Florida Celery Conniittee, Florida Tomato Comtiittee, Florida Sweet Corn Exchange, 
South Florida Vegetable Exchange, Zellwood Sweet Corn Exchange, and North Florida Growers Exchange. 
Sales agencies and transportation firms provided additional inputs needed to complete the statisti- 
cal story. 

Foremost, the growers, shippers, and processors volunteered most of the basic data used in 
developing these statistics. The public spirited cooperation of these individuals and groups is 
appreciated. 

Fieldmen James Holloway, Parrish; E. J. Hutchins, Deerfield Beach; Charles Robertson, Home- 
stead; and James Spires of Immokalee collected much of the basic acreage, production, and price 
statistics in this bulletin. This report was assembled under the direction of Bill Erwin with assis- 
tance from Wade Adams and Shirley Zonner of the Florida Agricultural Statistics Service and H. B. 
Buchanan, Market News Section. The authors also wish to thank Ray Crickenberger, Marcelo Diaz, 
Kitty Hildreth, Iraides Ojeda, Pat Quittence, Tomny Scherer, and others of the Florida Agricultural 
Statistics Service who assisted in compiling and preparing this report.

DEFINITIONS AND EXPLANATIONS 



SEASONAL GROUPS— State level estimates for most 
crops are estimated on a six month seasonal basis. These 
statistics are published in January. The periods are for 
the crop year July through December and January through 
June. The two six month periods were combined in this 
publication into a crop year total for all crops. Produc- 
tion sold or utilized is shown by months. 

PLANTED ACREAGE is the total acreage which has been 
planted for harvest during the crop year. Acreage lost 
and replanted to the same crop in time for harvest in the 
same quarter is counted only once. Acreage harvested and 
planted again to the same crop is counted twice. 

HARVESTED ACREAGE is the acreage partially or com- 
pletely harvested. Acreage lost before or at maturity 
through natural or economic causes is not included in the 
acreage for harvest. 

YIELD is the average production per acre of merchan- 
table quality harvested and sold or utilized. 

PRODUCTION is the quantity actually harvested and 
sold or utilized. 

UNIT VALUE for fresh market sales is the equivalent 
price received, f.o.b. shipping point basis and encompas- 
ses all grades and sizes marketed or utilized. Included 
are packing charges, selling charges, precooling, top 
ice, or other costs which contribute to the value of the 
product at shipping point. The value per unit for quanti- 
ties sold to processors is the average value paid for 
usable quantities, on a "delivered to plant door" basis. 
This value includes transportation and other normal costs 
incident to delivery at plant door. 

TOTAL VALUE is the equivalent value of production 
sold or utilized based on the unit value. Cullage and 



other quantities not sold or utilized because of natural 
or economic factors are excluded. 

OTHER COUNTIES include harvested acreage for all 
counties for which either published data would result in 
the disclosure of individual operations or acreage totals 
for specific commodities are of minor importance in the 
State. 

All shipments and unloads, rail , truck , air , and 
boat, are recorded nationally in 10,000 pound units each 
day. Annual releases are in 1,000 cwt. In this publica- 
tion, shipments and unloads for some commodities were 
converted to most common trading units. Rail and piggy- 
back weights and conversion factors were determined by 
several Market News Service field offices. Mixed car 
(rail) loadings by stations have been prorated by com- 
modities. 

Where possible, the national Market News Service in 
Washington, D. C. has established a single uniform weight 
per commodity to be used nationally in converting to 
weight units for the various means of transportation. 
Weights per common container used and number of units per 
rail car or truck may be obtained by writing the MNS 
office in Winter Park, Florida. 



PRODUCTION AND PRICE UNIT— The official USDA vege- 
table crop estimates are published on a weight basis. For 
this bulletin, the official estimates for most vegetable 
crops have been converted to what is believed to be the 
most commonly used containers. If changes in container 
weights are necessary, all data pertaining to the produc- 
tion of the commodity in question are revised to maintain 
comparability between years. The table below gives the 
net weight used per container and the number of contain- 
ers per hundredweight for Florida produce.

SUMMARY OF THE 1988-89 VEGETABLE SEASON 



The farm value of Florida-grown vegetables, melons, 
potatoes, and strawberries sold in the 1988-89 crop year 
totaled just over $1.5 billion, 16 percent above that of 
the 1987-88 season. Crops increasing in value were cab- 
bage, celery, cucumbers, eggplant, green peppers, Irish 
potatoes, radishes, tomatoes, and strawberries. Crops 
with lower values than the previous year were snap beans, 
escarole, lettuce, squash, and watermelons. Of the five 
crops showing declines, only watermelons did not show a 
decline in acreage and only snap beans did not show a 
reduction in season average price. 

Total harvested acreage was essentially unchanged 
from a year earlier; however, there were the usual ups 
and downs and shifting among the various crops. Crops 
showing the largest acreage increases were: Irish pota- 
toes, 6,500; tomatoes, 3,900; and radishes, 700. Other 
crops with smaller increases were celery, green peppers, 
strawberries, and watermelons. Crops showing decreases 
included sweet corn, 4,300; snap beans, 2,250; and 
carrots with a reduction of 2,800 acres. Other crops 
with acreage reductions included cabbage, cucumbers, 
eggplant, escarole, lettuce, and squash. 

Season average prices for snap beans, carrots, sweet 
corn, cucumbers, tomatoes, and strawberries were record 
highs. Cabbage, celery, green peppers, and Irish pota- 
toes also were up from the previous year. Season average 
prices for all other crops estimated were down from a 
year earlier. 

Land preparation, planting, and transplanting for 
the fall season were underway by mid-July as is usual. 
Temperatures continued hot through September with records 
being established in some areas. The most notable 
weather, during the early fall, was the passing through 
of a number of tropical storms, and hurricanes Florence 
and Gilbert, etc., which dumped some excessive amounts of 
water on a number of crops. Plantings were delayed in 
some areas but, in the west central area, large acreages 
of young tomatoes and other recently planted vegetables 
were flooded. Some fields were abandoned, some re- 
planted, and some were left, with hope for production. It 
was not a good season for the west central production 
area. 



Daytime temperatures, through November, continued 
generally in the mid-to-upper 80 "s in the central and 
southern areas and somewhat cooler in the northern areas. 
Precipitation was mostly limited and widely scattered. 
Planting, harvesting, and other fieldwork made good prog- 
ress. Frost the first week of December ended the season 
in the northern areas. Freezing temperatures a couple of 
weeks later mercifully ended the season for most crops in 
the west central area. 

Some unusually warm weather during January and early 
February pushed crop growth and development well ahead of 
normal. Any thoughts of some early spring crops came to 
an abrupt halt with the advent of a late February cold 
snap. Freezing temperatures were recorded from the 
northernmost areas, southward to Homestead, and most 
points in between. No crop emerged unscathed. The west 
central and southwestern areas were hit hardest. For the 
southwest, it was too late to replant in most instances 
and for the west central, it meant a later running sea- 
son. Crop covers were used in a number of fields primar- 
ily in the southeast and were quite successful. 

Weather for the remainder of the growing season was 
uneventful. Temperatures were seasonal and rainfall was 
limited during the early spring, increasing by late 
spring. One exception was a rainy period throughout much 
of June and early July, in the Panhandle, which caused 
some flooding and other water related damage. Disaster 
Damage Assessment Reports were filed in a number of 
counties. Watermelon and tomatoes were among the crops 
damaged. Northern and Panhandle growers continued to 
harvest a relatively small acreage of assorted 
vegetables. The Quincy area tomato crop continued to be 
picked into July in response to a rather strong market 
for this time of year. 

Most of the weather data for this summary was sup- 
plied through the National Weather Service, Auburn, Ala- 
bama. Information on the effects of weather on crops was 
provided by the Florida Agricultural Statistics Service 
fieldmen.

SNAP BEANS 
1988-89 



Bush beans are grown in most areas of the State. The 
southeastern area (Homestead and Pompano) continues as 
the major production area. Pole beans are grown primari- 
ly in Dade County, with small acreages in Gadsden and 
Marion counties and the west central area. 

The State's growers produced 3.9 million bushels of 
snap beans for fresh and processing, down 611,000 bushels 
from a year earlier and the smallest crop since 1980-81. 
Harvested acreage for both fresh and processed totaled 
28,100 acres, down 7 percent from the previous year. Some 
early bean land was used for a larger than normal seed 
corn crop during 1988-89; however, the trend in bean 
acreage has been downward in recent years. A yield of 
138 bushels per acre for the fresh market crop was 12 
bushels short of the record setting yield established a 
year earlier. Processing yields averaged a record high 
167 bushels per acre, 33 bushels above the previous year 
and 4 bushels greater than the previous record estab- 
lished in 1978-79. 

The average f.o.b. price of $14.85 for fresh market 
beans was $2.65 higher than a year earlier and a new 
record. The value of the fresh market crop, at just 
short of $53 million, was 2 percent less than the pre- 
vious year. Processing beans averaged $4.33 per bushel, 
$1.16 more than last year and the highest since 1984-85. 

The first beans, as is usual, were picked in the 
west Florida area in September. Hot, often wet, weather 



delayed planting in the central and southern areas; how- 
ever, by late September, planting had become active in 
all areas. The weather during the fall growing season 
was generally agreeable with the exception of some flood- 
ing caused by heavy rains accompanying tropical storms, 
during October, in the west central area. There also was 
the usual bloom loss from the occasional gusting winds 
during this time period. 

Harvest was underway in the Pompano area by mid- 
October, followed shortly thereafter by harvest in the 
Homestead area. The west central crop, running late, did 
not pick until mid-November and was completed by mid- 
December. Harvest peaked in February in the Homestead 
and Pompano areas, somewhat later than usual. 

Winter crops suffered seme cold damage during late 
February and yields were reduced substantially. Growers 
in the west central area had all early planted spring 
acreage frozen and had to replant. 



Weather, for the remainder of the season, was gen- 
erally favorable for good growth and development. The 
west central area came into production by the end of 
April and northern areas by early May. Harvest in Home- 
stead was complete by mid-May and in the Pompano area by 
the end of the month. Light supplies continued from 
northern fields until the close of the season at the end 
of June. 



CABBAGE 
1988-89 



Cabbage growers in Florida produced 6.5 million 
crates and bags of cabbage during the 1988-89 season, 
down 1 percent from the previous season. The gross value 
of sales was $30.4 million, up 3 percent from the $29.6 
million value of the 1987-88 crop. The average f.o.b. 
price was $4.70 per crate or bag, up 19 cents from the 
$4.51 received for last year's crop. The decrease in 
production from last year was more than offset by the 
increase in price, thus, the increase in value. 

Acreage planted totaled 15,900 acres, down 1,200 
acres from the 17,100 acres planted during the 1987-88 
season. Harvested acreage amounted to 15,500 acres. This 
was 1 percent less than last season. The average yield of 
418 crates or bags per acre was down 3 bags from the 
previous season's average. 

The Hastings area, long the State's leader in cab- 
bage production, has been overtaken by the combined east 
central and west central areas. This area accounted for 
36 percent of the State's production during the 1988-89 
season. The leading cabbage producing county was Manatee 
with 3,400 acres harvested, or 22 percent of the State 
total. 



Planting was underway by early September in the 
Hastings area and by the end of the month had become 
active in most all other production areas. A limited 
number of acres continues to be seeded directly rather 
than transplanted. The most active period for transplant- 
ing/seeding was October through December. 

Harvest began the last week of November. Volume 
increased in each succeeding month through March. Cutting 
then tapered off to mid-June when the last cabbage was 
cut in Hastings. Fall production accounted for about 10 
percent of total production, winter production accounted 
for 60 percent, and spring production accounted for the 
remaining 30 percent. 

Generally, weather was favorable for making a good 
crop in most all production areas. However, a cold front 
the last week of February, brought freezing temperatures 
to the Hastings and central areas. Damage from the freez- 
ing temperatures was minimal. The cooler, but not freez- 
ing, temperatures were beneficial to the crop in the 
southeast.

CARROTS 
1988-89 



Florida growers produced 940 thousand hundredweight 
(94,000 , 000 pounds) of carrots for both the fresh and 
processing markets during the 1988-89 season, down 21 
percent from the 1,183 thousand hundredweight produced 
last season. Carrots for fresh use accounted for 83 
percent of production while processing use was 17 per- 
cent, equal to the 1987-88 season percentages. Usually 
about 12 to 14 percent of the crop is mini or finger 
carrots with the balance being regular size. 

Producers harvested 9,400 acres of carrots during 
the 1988-89 season frcm the 9,700 acres planted. Both 
planted and harvested acreages were down 24 and 23 per- 
cent, respectively, from the 12,700 acres planted and 
12,200 acres harvested in 1987-88. 

Growers received a record high average price of 
$16.00 per hundredweight in 1988-89, up $4.60 from the 
$11.40 per hundred pounds received in the previous sea- 
son. Total value of carrots reached slightly over $15.0 



million to set a new record high and was up 12 percent 
from the previous record high of $13.5 million received 
during the 1987-88 season. The increase in value can be 
attributed to high prices received throughout the growing 
season for a reduced crop. 

Rain showers during early September delayed some 
fall plantings with most growers back on schedule by the 
end of the month. Harvest of mini or finger carrots 
started during the middle of October from the Everglades' 
muck soils south of Lake Okeechobee while harvest began 
in the muck soils around Lake Apopka by late month. 
Regular type harvest commenced at the end of November in 
Zellwood. Same frosty weather in late December harmed 
youngest acreage in the Zellwood area with Everglades 
acreage escaping damage. Another frost during late Feb- 
ruary nipped the tops of both regular and mini types in 
the Zellwood area, causing spotty damage and reducing 
supplies throughout most of March. All harvest was com- 
pleted by the end of June. 



Florida celery marketings of 5.94 million crates 
were down just slightly from a year earlier. Harvested 
acreage was up by some 400 acres but still the second 
lowest since the pre-war crop of 1939-40. The average 
yield of 716 crates per acre was down 41 crates frcm the 
record 757 crate yield of the previous year. 

The Everglades, with just over 80 percent of the 
harvested acreage in the State, was the foremost area of 
production throughout the season. The north central area, 
supplemented by a light supply from the Sarasota area, 
accounted for the rest of the State's celery crop and 
provided light, continuous supplies with only a short 
break in early January. 

The total value of the crop~$54.9 million— was 15 
percent above a year ago and was the highest since the 
record setting 1983-84 crop. 

The season average price, at $9.25 f.o.b. per crate, 
was $1.25 above the previous year and the second highest 
of record. Prices for the 1988-89 season compared with 
the previous season, started higher with the first cut- 
tings in November, but fell below the earlier year in 
December and January. Prices improved in February and 
continued to the end of the season in June, above the 
previous year. 

Plant bed preparation and seeding were in progress, 
by mid-June in both major production areas. Transplanting 
was underway in August, in both areas. Wet weather slowed 
plantings in the central area, during early September, 



CELERY 
1988-89 

but growers were back on schedule by midmonth. Plantings 
in the Everglades were completed by the first week of 
April. Plantings in the central area were, as is usual, 
interrupted the last 2 weeks in September, restarted and 
completed by mid-April. 

Harvest began in early November, in Zellwood, fol- 
lowed shortly thereafter by the Everglades. Weather was 
generally conducive for good growth and development 
throughout the season. The late February freeze in- 
flicted only minimal damage in either area. 

Production increased rapidly. Shipments during De- 
cember and January were the largest in 10 years. The 
lower prices during this time period, are likely at least 
partially explained by this increased volume. Volume 
dipped slightly for February then increased to a seasonal 
peak in May. The season then tailed off rapidly with the 
last celery cut by the end of June. 

Quality and size were mostly good throughout the 
season. Yields were the second highest in over 30 years. 
Approximately 15 percent of the crop was not harvested 
for various reasons. Growers passed some acreage in 
order to maintain good size and quality celery. 

Celery is subject to a Federal marketing order ad- 
ministered by the Florida Celery Committee. Field super- 
visors provided the basic acreage and production data. In 
cooperation with the Celery Committee, these data are 
assembled into weekly, monthly, and annual reports and 
published in this Annual Summary. 



CHINESE CABBAGE 
1988-89 



Chinese cabbage is grown primarily on the mucklands 
in the Zellwood and Everglades areas. The organic soils 
provide a very good medium for rapid growth. Harvest was 
underway by late November and had reached a good volume 
by early December. Supplies were generally steady through 



May, then tapered off to the end of the season around 
mid-June. Quality was generally good throughout the 
growing season. Shipments for 1988-89 totaled 142,000 
crates compared with 209,000 crates a year earlier (see 
page 58) .

SWEET CORN 
1988-89 



Florida growers produced 16 percent less fresh mar- 
ket sweet corn in the 1988-89 season than in the 1987-88 
season. Production during 1988-89 totaled 10,799,000 
crates compared with 12,812,000 crates produced in 1987- 
88. Harvested acreage totaled 51,000 acres for the 1988- 
89 season compared with 55,300 acres harvested the pre- 
vious season. Yields averaged 212 crates per acre, down 
20 crates from the 232 crates averaged per acre during 
the previous season. 

Florida continued as the Nation's leading grower of 
fresh market sweet corn and led the Nation in value with 
production worth $78,382,000. The season average f.o.b. 
price of $7.26 per crate was $1.68 higher than the 1987- 
88 average of $5.58 per crate. Sweet corn ranked fifth in 
value of vegetables, melons, and strawberries produced in 
Florida, exceeded only by tomatoes, potatoes, green pep- 
pers, and strawberries. 



Plantings were underway in July for the fall Zell- 
wood crop, while Everglades growers started limited 
planting in late July. Tropical storms during September 
damaged some Zellwood area fields with some acreage com- 
pletely lost and some fields salvaged for local market 
sales. Light harvest was underway in northern Peninsula 
areas and Zellwood at the end of September while some 
Dade County U-Pic acreage was being seeded. Zellwood 
picking peaked during mid-October as Dade County growers 
began commercial seedings. 



Southeastern producers started planting at the end 
of October. The main crop harvest began in early Novem- 
ber for the Everglades. Most picking in the Zellwood 
area was complete by early December. Frosts in December 
hindered kernel development and damaged leaves in some 
Everglades fields. Spring crop seedings for the Ever- 
glades were underway in late December. In early January 
both southeastern and Dade County growers began harvest- 
ing while Everglades producers wound up picking by mid- 
month. During mid-February through March, Dade County 
picking was at a peak level. A limited acreage, planted 
in the Zellwood area during late February, was damaged by 
a freeze with all acreage replanted. Oldest fields in 
the Everglades area were also replanted because of freeze 
damage, while fields with plants ankle high to spike 
stage escaped damaged. Winds accompanying the late Feb- 
ruary freeze burned leaves and tossed plants in the Dade 
County and southeastern areas. The late February freeze 
hurt the quality of Dade County sweet corn and stopped 
harvest for a short time in the southeast. 

Light harvest began in the Everglades during late 
March while Dade County growers finished picking by late 
April. The Zellwood spring crop harvest started in early 
May. Picking of the northern Peninsula spring crop 
started at the end of May. Harvest in the Everglades was 
virtually finished by mid-June while northern Peninsula 
growers wound up picking by the end of the month. Zell- 
wood producers provided light supplies through early 
July. 



CUCUMBERS 
1988-89 



Production of fresh market cucumbers in Florida 
during 1988-89 totaled a record high 6.3 million bushels, 
up 9 percent from a year earlier. Acreage harvested, at 
13,900 acres, was the lowest since 1973-74. This reduced 
acreage was more than offset by the record setting yield 
of 450 bushels per acre, an increase of 65 bushels over 
the previous high, established in 1987-88. The total 
fresh market production is valued at $61.8 million, also 
a record high and 13 percent above the previous year. 
The season average price of $9.89, a 31 cent increase 
over the previous year, in combination with the record 
production, account for the large increase in crop value. 

Supplies in 1988-89 were generally available from 
late September through early July. Supplies, however, 
were limited, as they historically are, from January 
through March. Many of the recorded shipments moving out- 
of-state during this time period were from offshore and 
truck imports resold in mixed loads. 

Monthly prices for the 1988-89 fall crop started out 
lower than a year earlier. However, prices had improved 
by December and with the exception of March and June, 
exceeded the previous year for the remainder of the crop 
year. 

Cucumbers are grown in most all areas of the State. 
The west central area, with 32 percent of the planted 
acreage (a 900 acre boost from the previous year) surpas- 
sed both the southwest and the southeastern regions which 
accounted for 30 and 25 percent respectively. The west 
and north central regions accounted for the remaining 
acreage. 

The west central area suffered some very heavy 
damage in early September, from excessive rain and flood- 
ing that accompanied a couple of tropical depressions. 



This inclement weather came at a time when some acreage 
was only a few days from harvest. Other production areas 
were not seriously affected by this weather. A light 
volume was being shipped from the southeastern and west 
central regions by the end of September and was underway 
by late October in the southwest. The fall crop harvest 
peaked in November with all areas shipping cukes. The 
season then tailed off with the west central area finish- 
ing by mid-December and the other major production areas 
shipping through mid-January. A very light volume was 
available, primarily from the southeast and southwest 
during the winter months. 

Planting of the spring crop was active during early 
January through March. The weather was especially accom- 
modating until a cold front in late February, with accom- 
panying freezing temperatures, caused extensive damage to 
plantings in most all areas. The southwest was hit espe- 
cially hard since they had little time for replanting. 
The west central area had only a limited acreage in the 
ground and was able to replant most fields. The condi- 
tion of the crop in the southeast was lowered and there 
was some kill. Crop blankets reduced damage in a number 
of fields in this area. Cukes in Homestead also suffered 
and there was some freeze loss in colder areas. Weather 
for the remainder of the season was generally conducive 
for good growth and development. 

Harvest was underway on the spring crop, by mid- 
March in the southwest and Pcmpano areas. The west cen- 
tral crop started coming in the first of April and 
northern area harvest was underway by mid-May. Produc- 
tion peaked in May and then tailed off to the end of the 
season in early July. In spite of the 2 major weather 
distractions, namely the September tropical storms and 
the late February freeze, yields were up in all areas 
except the west central area.

EGGPLANT 
1988-89 



Growers planted 2,100 acres, down 100 acres from the 
previous year. This continues a downward trend from the 
peak years of 1978-79 - 1980-81 when 3,100 acres were 
planted. Yields, however, were a record high 810 bushels 
per acre compared to 668 bushels a year earlier and the 
previous high of 710 bushels established during the 1983- 
84 season. Production, at 1.6 million bushels, was up 15 
percent from the past season. 

Total value of production, placed at a record high 
$11.4 million, was 11 percent above a year earlier. 
The average price of $7.05 per bushel, however, was 26 
cents below the record setting price of a year ago. 
Compared with a year earlier, monthly prices were higher 
for the fall crop but, fell below some record and near 
record setting prices for the winter crop. Spring crop 
prices were mostly higher than the year before. 

Hot weather, lingering through much of September, 
adversely affected growth of fall plantings. Initial 
harvest was underway in northern areas by early Septem- 
ber, and in the southeast by the end of September, and 
was up to a good volume by mid-October. Picking was 
underway in the west central area by early November. 
This crop was ravaged by tropical storms during September 
and was not a good producer. 



Winter weather was generally conducive to good 
growth and development. The late February cold weather 
did very little damage in the southeast where most of the 
crop was growing; however, crops on the other side of the 
Peninsula did suffer some damage. 

The spring season was mostly uneventful . Good 
weather netted good yields in most production areas. The 
last of the crop was harvested in early July in the 
northern area. 

The southeastern area around Pompano/Delray ac- 
counted for just over half of the State's production. 
The northern and central areas combined, contributed a 
third of the production with the remainder coming from 
the southwest. 

Production is generally continuous throughout the 
entire crop year in the southeast and southwest. The 
crops in the western, northern, and central areas are for 
fall and spring harvest only because the possibility of 
freezing weather is too great during the winter months. 
First sales were from cuttings in the western and 
northern areas in late September. Harvest followed the 
usual pattern and progressed southward in the fall, con- 
tinued through the winter in the southern areas, and 
then moved back northward in the spring. 



ESCAR0LE -ENDIVE 
1988-89 



Production of escarole and endive during the 1988-89 
season totaled 2.3 million crates, down 9 percent from a 
year earlier. The average yield, at 551 crates per acre, 
was 4 crates more than the previous year and the highest 
in almost 15 years; however, this yield increase was not 
enough to offset a 10 percent decrease in harvested acre- 
age (from 4,700 to 4,250). 

Prices during the season averaged $4.10 per crate, 
compared to $4.90 for the previous season. This was the 
lowest average price since the 1980-81 season. The total 
value of sales, at $9.6 million, was $3.0 million short 
of that of a year earlier and the lowest since 1974-75. 
This reflects both the reduction in production and the 
lower season average price. 

Growers in the Everglades, which had three-fourths 
of the harvested acreage in the 1988-89 season, began 
seeding in late August. Weekly planting schedules con- 



tinued through March. Plantings in the Zellwood muckland 
area conmenced around mid-August for a small fall crop. 
Plantings, in this area, are heaviest between January and 
March when the spring crop is planted. A small acreage 
is also grown around the Lake Placid and Sarasota muck- 
lands, primarily as a spring crop. 

Sales started slowly in late October in the Zellwood 
area and shortly thereafter in the Everglades. Market- 
ings reached a good volume by November and peaked in 
January. Sales volume dipped slightly in February and 
March before peaking again during April. Harvest was 
completed in the Everglades by late May and in the cen- 
tral area a couple of weeks later. 

Growing conditions were mostly favorable throughout 
the season. A late February cold snap inflicted some 
frost and windburn damage in all areas but the damage was 
not extensive.

LETTUCE 
1988-89 



Acreage, production, and value statistics of lettuce 
in this bulletin combine the various types into a single 
estimate. The types in order of importance are iceberg, 
romaine, Boston, bibb, and leaf. 

Florida lettuce growers produced 2.2 million cwt of 
iceberg and specialty types during the 1988-89 season— an 
8 percent decrease from the previous year. This is ex- 
plained by small reductions in both harvested acreage and 
average yield. Harvested acreage, at 11,300 acres, was 
down 3 percent and the average yield, at 193 cwt, was 5 
percent below the previous year. The all lettuce yield 
estimate is a function of not only the yield (high or 
low, up or down) of a particular lettuce type but, also 
the mix of the various types. 

The season average f.o.b. price for all lettuce of 
$19.06 per cwt was $6.05 less than the previous year but 
57 cents higher than the previous 5 year average. Aver- 
age monthly prices for the fall and early winter months 
were below the unusually high prices for this time period 
a year earlier, but finished the crop year higher than 
the previous year. 

The Everglades muckland accounted for almost 90 per- 
cent of the planted acreage and was the source of a con- 
tinuous supply of good quality lettuce beginning in early 
November and ending in late May. Zellwood is the other 
major producing area. Sarasota and the Lake Placid muck- 
lands contribute light supplies during much of the 
season. 



Seeding, as is usual, was underway in early Septem- 
ber. All areas were actively planting by early October. 
The Everglades had continuous plantings through March. 

Specialty types are grown in all production areas, 
while virtually all of the iceberg type is grown in the 
Everglades. Very light harvest of specialty types was 
underway by the end of October in both production areas. 
The first iceberg was cut the last week of November in 
the Everglades. 

The Everglades continued to be the principal sup- 
plier during the winter period. Supplies of all lettuce 
peaked during February. Supplies then declined to the 
season's end the last week of May when the last lettuce 
was cut in the Zellwood area. 

Temperatures, for much of the fall season, could be 
considered normal— a little warmer than ideal but still 
not detrimental. A number of tropical storms that passed 
in and around Florida did little or no harm to the let- 
tuce crops. A mid-December cold snap did burn the cen- 
tral area crop but inflicted no appreciable damage to the 
crop in the Everglades. A late February freeze, however, 
did damage crops in both areas and shipments were reduced 
somewhat for the remainder of the season. Quality was 
mostly good to very good, for all types, for much of the 
season. 



PEPPERS 
1988-89 



Florida, for the seventh year in a row, produced a 
record pepper crop. Production totaled 14.1 million 
bushels, an increase of 6 percent from the previous year. 
Harvested acres and yield were also records at 20,900 
acres and 673 bushels, respectively. Yields have been 
climbing steadily in recent years due to new varieties 
and cultural practices. 

Total planted acreage statewide, at 21,900 acres, 
was up 400 acres from the crop of 1987-88. Acreage in 
the southwest continued to increase dramatically. A 
total of 10,250 acres was planted; an increase of 1,650 
acres above the previous year. Planted acreage in the 
west central area, at 4,100 acres, was up 750 acres. 
Offsetting much of these increases, were the southeastern 
pepper growers who reduced planted acreage by 1,750 
acres. Acreage was also down, but to a much lesser de- 
gree, in the north, west, and west central areas. The 
southwest retained its ranking as the State's number 1 
pepper producing area by accounting for just over half of 
the State's pepper production. 



The season average f.o.b. price of $7.83 per bushel 
was up 80 cents from a year earlier but 21 cents below 
the most recent 5 year average. Prices for the fall 
season ran below a year earlier, but for the winter and 
spring seasons, were above the previous year. The total 
value of just over $110 million was 18 percent above that 
of the 1987-88 crop and the second highest of record. 
Marketing got underway the end of October and increased 



to a good level by December. Supplies then slowed 
through February but increased from March to a peak in 
May. Volume then declined and was mostly over by the end 
of June. 

Planting was underway by early August. Tropical 
storms in early September hit the west central area espe- 
cially hard. Widespread flooding ruined many fields and 
seriously damaged most others. Other production areas 
showed little or no damage and generally had a good grow- 
ing season. Harvest was underway in the Delray/Boynton 
area by around mid-October followed 2 to 3 weeks later by 
the southwest area. Harvest of the west central fall 
season was delayed or stalled by the same wet weather, 
and did not get underway until mid-November. Yields in 
all areas, except the west central, where harvest started 
late and ended early, were generally good. 



A freeze in late February killed most recently 
planted fields in the west central area. Growers in this 
area had time to replant acreage; however, growers in the 
southwest area were not so lucky. They had to go with 
"what they had" since time had pretty much run out on 
their planting season. Cold damage was not so severe in 
the southeast. Many parts of this area are naturally a 
little warmer than in other production areas but another 
factor that played a role was the more widespread use of 
plant covers in this area. Weather conditions were gen- 
erally favorable for the remainder of the crop year. The 
season ended in the northern area by early July.

POTATOES 
1988-89 



Potato production in Florida during 1989, including 
both winter and spring, totaled 8.3 million cwt, 2 per- 
cent greater than the 1988 crop and the second highest of 
record. A total of 43,600 acres were planted for harvest 
in 1989. Out of this total, 42,600 acres were dug, the 
largest acreage since 1966. The value of the crop was 
placed at $129 million, up $83 million from the previous 
year and a record high. This increase is attributed to 
the increase in the season average price. The price re- 
ceived for all potatoes averaged $15.50 per cwt compared 
with $5.65 in 1988. 

The average yield for all potatoes was 195 cwt per 
acre, 31 cwt below that of 1988. In the Hastings area, 
which includes Flagler, Putnam, and St. Johns counties, 
the average yield also was 195 cwt per acre, down 40 cwt 
from the previous year. The Hastings area potato crop was 
hurt badly by the late February freeze. Some of the 
other spring potatoes were also hurt by the same freeze. 
The spring potatoes grow in other areas of the State had 
an average yield of 200 cwt per acre, down 10 cwt from a 
year earlier. The winter crop averaged 190 cwt, 10 cwt 
lower than 1988. 



The "red- skinned" varieties are the dominant pota- 
toes grown for winter harvest in south Florida. Most of 
the winter crop is sold for table stock but a few sales 
are to the potato chip industry. In the Hastings area, 
the "white-skinned" varieties dominate. Most of the Hast- 
ings production goes to the potato chip industry. These 
are our Memorial Day chips! 

The first winter potatoes were planted in the south- 
east and southwestern areas around mid-October. Planting 
in Dade County started the last week of October. Har- 
vesting started in late January and was active during 
February through April. Planting of the spring crop 
comnenced in early December in the west central area and 
was underway in the Hastings area by the end of the first 
week in January. The potato crop in the Hastings area 
was progressing rapidly until a freeze hit February 24 
and 25. Almost all of the above ground vines were 
killed. Fields where the crop did not make reasonable 
recovery were replanted. If the demand had not been so 
good, many of these fields would not have been replanted. 
Harvest commenced in the west central area in March, in 
the Hastings area in April, and was completed by late 
June. 



SPINACH 
1988-89 



Spinach statistics have not been published separate- 
ly for Florida in recent years to avoid disclosure of 
individual operations. Data for these seasons, however 
have been included in the "Other Vegetable" series shown 



in this publication. Data for 1973 and earlier are avail- 
able upon request. Harvested acreage for 1989 was 
unchanged from a year earlier. Most of the crop is grown 
in the north central area. 



SQUASH 
1988-89 



Florida's production of squash during the 1988-89 
season, at 3.8 million bushels, was 11 percent above last 
year. The total of 13,650 acres harvested was slightly 
less than the previous year and continued a 4 year down- 
ward trend. While harvested acreage has been trending 
down, yields have been trending up, and at a faster pace. 
The 277 bushel average yield was 34 bushels higher than 
the prior record established a year earlier. 

The season average price of $9.50 per bushel was 
$2.30 below that of 1987-88. The record production was 
not enough to off est the lower price; therefore, the 
total value of the crop, at just under $36 million, was 
10 percent less than a year earlier and was the lowest 
since the 1984-85 crop. 

Florida produces acorn, butternut, yellow crookneck, 
yellow straightneck, white, and zucchini squash. Dade 
County, with around one-third of the harvested acreage, 
produces yellow crookneck exclusively. The Pompano area, 
in addition to being a major producing area, is also an 
important market for squash grown in other areas of the 
State. This is especially true when local supplies reach 
low levels during the winter months. The southwest 
area produces a continuous supply of most types. Central, 



north, and west Florida provide a good volume of most 
types during the fall and spring seasons. 

Squash is one of the few crops grown in Florida that 
is shipped every month of the year, although shipments 
during the summer are light and mostly confined to local 
markets. The 1988-89 season was underway by mid-September 
in the west central area. Early volume was reduced by 
excessive rain and flooding in this area. Growers, by 
the first of October, were picking in the southeast and 
Homestead areas followed shortly thereafter by the south- 
west. Marketings peaked during November, dipped a bit in 
December, then peaked once again in January. 

A late February freeze did considerable damage to 
crops in most all areas except the west central area 
which had just started planting the spring crop. March 
shipments, as a percent of total crop, were down 50 per- 
cent from the most recent 5 year average for March. 

Weather for the remainder of the crop year was gen- 
erally favorable. Weather was a bit hot by mid-May and 
excessive rain in western and northern areas in early 
June helped end the season. All in all, most areas had a 
relatively good year in terms of yields.

RADISHES 
1988-89 



Radishes planted by Florida growers totaled 28,200 
acres during the 1988-89 crop year while harvested acre- 
age amounted to 27,000 acres. This compares with 28,000 
acres planted and 26,300 acres harvested during the 1987- 
88 season. Yield per acre averaged 235 cartons per acre 
compared with 192 cartons per acre averaged during the 
previous season. Production at 6,345,000 cartons was 26 
percent above the 5,050,000 cartons produced during the 
1987-88 season. The 1988-89 season marks the first year 
that production increased from the previous season since 
the 1984-85 season. The crop was valued at almost 20 
million dollars, up over 1.3 million from the previous 
season's value. The average f.o.b. price was $3.15 per 



carton, down 55 cents from the 1987-88 season average 
price. 

Seedings for the 1988-89 crop were underway by early 
September in the Everglades and central areas. Light 
harvest began in the central areas and the Everglades 
during early October. Harvest was delayed by seme 
limited frost damage during mid-to-late December, and 
again during late February and early March in central 
areas with some heaving noted. The Everglades was the 
main source of supplies for most of March with the cen- 
tral area harvest back to normal by April. Growers had 
completed harvest by late June. 



STRAWBERRIES 
1988-89 



Florida strawberry growers, for the third consecu- 
tive year, produced a record crop. Production totaled 
11.5 million flats during the 1988-89 season, up 10 per- 
cent from the previous record crop of 10.4 million flats 
produced during the 1987-88 season. The record crop can 
be attributed to the new record high yield of 2,167 flats 
per acre realized by growers. This yield compares with 
the previous record yield of 2,083 flats per acre aver- 
aged during the 1987-88 season. Strawberry acreage har- 
vested during the 1988-89 season at 5,300 acres was 300 
acres higher than the previous season. Producers re- 
ceived a new record high average f.o.b. price of $8.03 
per flat for the season, up 94 cents from the previous 
season price of $7.09 per flat, and 73 cents higher than 
the previous record high price of $7.30 per flat averaged 
during the 1986-87 season. Value of the crop at $92.2 
million exceeded the previous record high value of $73.9 
million attained for last season's crop. 

Transplanting started in the west central area dur- 
ing late September with plantings for the main crop 
starting in early October. Broward County growers got 
plantings underway during mid-October while Dade County 



growers began transplantings during mid-November. Brad- 
ford County growers transplanted a small winter acreage 
during mid-November. Very light harvest got underway in 
the west central area during late November with wind from 
a tropical storm knocking some fruit off plants. Growers 
ran overhead sprinklers to limit frost damage during mid- 
to-late December. U-Pic harvest began around mid-Decem- 
ber in the southeast and Dade County. Bradford County 
growers started picking in early February. Harvest of 
the main crop in west central areas started at the end of 
February. Spider mite infestations limited production in 
many fields, because a key pesticide normally used in 
their control was banned. Harvest was completed in all 
areas by early May. 

Fifty-five percent of the 1988-89 strawberry crop 
was harvested during March, compared with 47 percent 
harvested in March 1988. A sharp drop in April sales was 
partly due to the previously mentioned spider mite infes- 
tations reducing yields. Only the May average price was 
below the comparable month's price for the previous sea- 
son.

TOMATOES 
1988-89 



The value of the 1988-89 Florida tomato crop for 
fresh market and processing set a new record high of 
$657,288,000 for the fourth consecutive year. This value 
exceeded the previous record high value of $535,337,000 
attained during the 1987-88 season. The f.o.b. price 
received for fresh market tomatoes averaged a new record 
high of $9.32 for a 25-pound carton, $2.32 above the 
previous season average of $7.00 per carton and $1.54 
above the previous record high of $7.78 per carton aver- 
aged during the 1986-87 season. 

Total production of 71.4 million 25-pound carton 
equivalents was 8 percent below the 1987-88 record high 
production of 77.4 million cartons. Tomatoes utilized 
for fresh production accounted for 99 percent of total 
production while processing tomatoes made up the remain- 
ing 1 percent. The southwest area accounted for 39 per- 
cent of total fresh production while 28 percent came from 
the Palmetto-Ruskin area. Dade County made up 16.5 per- 
cent of the total production. East Coast (formerly known 
as Ft. Pierce-Pcmpano) produced 11.5 percent. The re- 
maining 5 percent of the tomato crop was produced in the 
western counties plus some scattered acreages in a few 
north central counties. A seven percent increase in the 
acreage harvested, from 56,800 acres the previous season 
to 60,700 acres in 1988-89, offset a 184 carton drop in 
yield, from 1,344 to 1,160 cartons per acre. 

Average monthly prices received for fresh market 
tomatoes during the 1988-89 season held above $7.00 for 
all months except December. Producers received the 
highest average monthly price of $13.95 per carton in 
April, while the lowest monthly price of $3.93 per carton 
was received in December. 

Tomato transplanting began during August in all 
areas. Seedings in Dade County also began in August. 
Tropical weather systems triggered abundant showers and 
delayed seme planting over all south Florida tomato pro- 
ducing areas during mid-to-late August. A tropical 
storm, which was a remnant of Tropical Storm Florence, 
passed during mid-September and dropped copious amounts 
of precipitation over the Palmetto-Ruskin area which 
caused growers to replant a considerable amount of acre- 
age, reduced fall yields due to the shedding of bottom 
leaves and blooms, and increased the incidence of 
disease. Dade County and East Coast growers received no 
significant damage from winds caused by Hurricane Gilbert 
that gusted up to 35 miles per hour during late Septem- 
ber. Palmetto-Ruskin fall crop transplantings and re- 
plantings were finished by early October. Growers in the 



western counties began harvest during late September and 
early October with scattered frost during mid-October 
causing virtually no damage. Palmetto-Ruskin growers 
started picking during mid-October while southwestern and 
East Coast fields were first picked during late month. 
Growers in the western counties virtually completed com- 
mercial fall crop picking by mid-November while Dade 
County producers started harvesting. Winds from Tropical 
Storm Keith caused scattered, mostly minor damage to 
tomatoes during late November with a limited amount of 
plants and stakes blown down. Frosts during late Decem- 
ber caused some light leafburn in the southwest, but 
virtually no damage to Dade and East Coast crops, while a 
heavy frost in the Palmetto-Ruskin area brought the fall 
crop harvest to a halt. 

Very limited rainfall during December, January, and 
most of February caused some irrigation wells to dry up 
when water tables became low, especially in southwestern 
localities. Palmetto-Ruskin growers began spring crop 
transplantings during early January while Dade County 
producers finished seedings. Warm days and mild nights 
throughout January and most of February speeded fruit 
development in all areas. A late February freeze accom- 
panied by gusty winds killed plants, especially in the 
Palmetto-Ruskin area, with producers resetting most lost 
acreage. The late February freeze also caused some heavy 
blocm loss and fruit droppage, especially in southwestern 
localities with some leaf and vine burn reported for 
Dade County and the East Coast. 

Growers in the western counties began transplanting 
during early March. Producers welcomed the warm tempera- 
tures and rains that fell during early March. Cool tem- 
peratures during mid-March slowed sane plant growth and 
fruit development. Temperatures, however, remained nor- 
mal to above normal during the rest of March until the 
end of the season (June). Rainfall remained limited from 
mid-March through June. 



Palmetto-Ruskin growers began spring crop harvest 
during early April while Dade County growers ended the 
season. Producers in western counties finished plantings 
around mid-April. East Coast and southwestern producers 
continued harvest until late May. Growers in western 
counties began picking during early June. Rain hampered 
the north Florida harvest and reduced yields during June. 
Palmetto-Ruskin harvest was reduced to picking vine-ripes 
and processing fruit at the end of June. Producers in 
the western counties marketed fruit through mid-July. 



WATERMELONS 
1988-89 



Watermelon acreage planted during the 1988-89 season 
totaled 58,000 acres — an increase of 1 percent from the 
1987-88 season. Of the total acres planted, 50,000 acres 
were harvested. This was a 200 acre increase over the 
previous gear's harvested acreage. The crop of 8.5 mil- 
lion cwt was 8 percent less than last season's production 
of 9.2 million cwt. The average yield for the State was 
170 cwt per acre, down 8 percent from the previous year. 

The average price received was $5.30 per cwt, down 
from last season's $6.79. Prices received by growers for 
melons were highest in the south and west central areas 
where the earliest melons are harvested. Total value of 
the crop was $45.0 million. This was 28 percent below 
last year's value of $62.6 million. 

A small acreage of fall watermelons is grown in the 
south and scattered central areas. These melons are har- 



vested in November and December, depending on weather 
conditions. This acreage and production is included in 
the spring crop. Some light planting of the spring crop 
was underway by late December in the southwest area, be- 
coming very active in January. The crop made good pro- 
gress until the freezing temperatures of February 24 and 
25 caused light to moderate damage in the southwest, 
heavy damage in the west central, and killed all unpro- 
tected fields in the north and north central areas. 
Heavy replanting was done. This replanting set the ex- 
pected harvest of the crop back. Harvest started in late 
March in the southwest. Harvest in the west central area 
started the last week of April. Harvest started in the 
southern part of the north/ north central area by the end 
of May. In mid-June, heavy rains in the Panhandle 
flooded watermelon fields and hampered harvest for the 
rest of the season. Commercial harvest was essentially 
over by mid-July for Florida watermelons.

OTHER CROPS 
1988-89 



Cantaloups are grown in Florida primarily in the 
spring and summer in the southwest and north central 
areas. Much of the production is sold through roadside 
stands and local markets. The peak harvest period is 
normally May and June. Harvest begins in the southwest 
and progresses northward seasonally. Some cantaloups also 
are grown during the fall months in the southwest and 
west central areas. Acreage continues at a relatively low 
level. This crop is not part of the regular program for 
vegetable and melon statistics. Researchers continue to 
work toward developing new varieties that will be better 
adapted to Florida's soils and climate. There appears to 
be some promise that acreage may expand in the future. 

Cauliflower is grown in the Zellwood, Hillsborough- 
Manatee, and Everglades areas. Acreage increased from a 
year earlier reversing the downward trend of the past few 
years. Reduced yields, however, lowered total production. 
Supplies are available from late November through early 
May. At the present time, statistics are not available 
for publication. Shipment information is recorded by the 
Market News Service. In the 1988-89 season, there were 
29.3 thousand cwt (117 thousand 25-pound cartons) shipped 
out of the State compared with 62.5 thousand cwt shipped 
the previous season. 

Tropical vegetable production during the 1988-89 
season was virtually unchanged from the previous year. By 
far the majority of the acreage is grown in Dade County. 
Commercial production began in the early 60 's. Tropical 
vegetables is a colloquial expression applied to certain 
vegetables eaten primarily by those of Latin American and 
Caribbean origin. The most common name for each crop 
followed by the scientific name is listed below. Other 
common terms for various vegetables are shown in paren- 
theses. The crops consist primarily of boniato-Ipomea 
batata (sweet potato); calabaza-Cucurbita (pumpkin); 
malanga-Xanthosoma caracu or Colocasia esculenta 
(dasheen, yautia); and cassava-Manihot esculenta (crantz, 
yucca, tapioca). The boniato, Calabaza, and Malanga con- 
stitute the bulk of the production. The Dade County Agri- 
cultural Extension Service reported 14,100 acres of 
tropical vegetables planted in the 1988 calendar year. 
Peak production of malanga occurs in February through 
April. Efforts are being made to provide more even sup- 
plies throughout the year. Available land continues to be 
a limiting factor for all agricultural production in Dade 
County. New varieties of calabaza are being brought in 
from Columbia, South America to select those that do 



best in south Florida. Miami is an important point of 
consumption for the Florida production. Also, consider- 
able amounts are consumed in the Tampa Bay area. The 
supplies shipped out of State are primarily for the New 
York City and Philadelphia areas. 

Col lard, turnip, mustard, and other greens are grown 
throughout the State and centered around large population 
areas and in the muck soils of the Everglades and Zell- 
wood areas. A fair volume was available from January 
through April with the final shipments made in early 
May. Shipments totaled 33 thousand cwt during the 
1988-89 season, down 43 percent fran a year earlier. 

Okra is grown in many areas of the State during the 
warm season of the year. However, Dade County produces 
okra for local use as well as for shipments to other 
States. Peak production takes place in May and June with 
a good supply in October and November. 

Green onions and leeks are produced in the north 
central area. Supplies are marketed primarily for local 
use at roadside stands and markets. There are several 
large producers who ship to other States. Supplies of dry 
onions are limited. Most of the dry onions are produced 
in southern and west central areas of the State. 

Parsley is available in both the curley and plain 
types. The bulk of the commercial volume shipped to other 
States is produced in the Everglades and Zellwood areas. 
Light supplies sold for local use are available from 
Sarasota, Lake Placid, and other areas. 

Southern peas are grown primarily in the northwest, 
west central, and Everglades areas of Florida. Dade 
County also produces a considerable amount of southern 
peas. Light supplies are generally available from 
September through December. Heavy movement occurs in 
April and May, especially in northwest Florida. A high 
percentage of the crop is utilized for processing. Good 
supplies are sold through local markets for fresh use. 
Market News Service shipment statistics for out-of-State 
markets show 24 thousand cwt for fresh market during the 
1988-89 season, up slightly from the previous year. 

Watercress is available the year around. The major 
source of supply is the Fellsmere area. Most of the pro- 
duction is shipped to northern and eastern markets in the 
United States. A limited supply is available from local 
State farmers' markets, especially the Sanford market.
